Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

If you found a Heavy Red Gauge wire that was cut. That is most likely cause the car had a Amp installed after market at one time. Does the car have a factory radio in it?

Did you just get the car?

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
